Discrimination comes in many forms. In California, one of the most prevalent discriminations against women in the workplace is pregnancy discrimination. There are federal and state rights protecting all workers in general.

If you feel you have been discriminated against in the workplace in California due to your pregnancy, you definitely have a right to file a pregnancy discrimination claim against your employer.

Can You Get Fired for Being Pregnant?
Although it may seem like a rare situation, this form of wrongful employment is much more common that you may think. Berberian Ain LLP can help you understand that you cannot be fired from your place of work simply for being pregnancy or having a pregnancy-related disability that requires you to take some time off of work. Additionally, if an employer fires an employee for being pregnant overtly or through a falsely-stated reason, there may be eligibility for recovering damages as this employer may have violated state and federal laws.
Examples of Pregnancy Discrimination
Pregnancy discrimination still exists in the workplace. Especially in California, where more and more women are moving up in their professions, pregnancy discrimination, gender discrimination and other forms of discrimination are being committed against women employees. There are different reasons why people discriminate in the workplace. Some are due to fear of being outperformed and overtaken by others in the corporate ladder, while others discriminate against women because of envy or spite.
Some pregnant women don’t want to file a pregnancy discrimination lawsuit against their employers because of fear of being retaliated against or losing their jobs. This is why you need to be represented by experienced pregnancy discrimination lawyers to make sure that your legal rights are protected while you are claiming your just compensation for your damages. The law protects you from workplace retaliation, but you will want to have things on record to prove that you were a victim of retaliation should it happen.
